Tying Down Lovers like Boats in the Harbour by Ryan Quinn Flanagan


She provides the twine and handcuffs and bed,
tells me to tie it tight and not like one of those sissies
that drive a minivan, laying out on her naked belly
the rest is not so hard for me to figure
and then there are the times she wants on top,
tying down lovers like boats in the harbour,
a little light whipping and tongue teasing to get
things hard, the way she works the balls through her
fingers with a magical painted dexterity,
blowing over everything just soft enough to wreck you,
this woman in your ear and all over your
blood-flush body.
